    The Next Call To Arms - Continental Drifting

    200 million years ago, there was one Super Continent, Panagaea. Over time, drifting caused the land mass to break apart to become the seven continents we know today.
    On the Move... Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics
    I suggest that we form a non-profit group (, that will hopefully get funded by the same people who are out to stop Global Warming,) that will build a HUGE CHAIN and anchor our respective arses where they are!!! Well, how about it? Franchises are available on a first come, first served basis. I have to work out the little details, but I'll keep in touch.....the nice men want to put me in my room now, I can't come out and play any more......wait, AL GORE, SAVE MEEEEEEE!!!!!!

    Just as long as I can be part of "Upper Management" and get a share of the non-profit salary.

    Thumbs up

    The modern trend seems to be to find some way to move all of the continents back together again into one land mass in order to make all of the people of the Earth one big happy family.

    So we must find a way to push them back together again rather than try to anchor them in place.

    That way we could all share & be nice to each other and all of the Oil would be Pangaen Oil Company and every single thing in Wal-Mart would stamped...Proudly Made In Pangaea.

    Reminds me of a sci-fi story I read once...

    A scientist in California predicted the BIG ONE, and warned everyone to leave California, because it would literally fall into the ocean. Well everyone took head and left; and sure enough, the BIG EARTHQUAKE did come... although California stayed put, and the rest of the US fell into the ocean!

    Sorry. I already bought my Algore Global Warming franchise. It ain't doing so hot. Could I use my carbon credits to purchase one of your franchises?

    i say pull the continents bak together i hate having to sit in a plane for 48 hours just to fight in some crappy ountry across an ocean. if the continents were pulled back together i could take a train. not to mention all the time it'd save waiting for my gear thats on a ship to arrive it'd be on the same train. and think of all the buisnessmen who'd no longer need to fly everywhere just hop on a train.

    then run all the trains on electric and there'd be no need for carbon credits.

    I vote for the anchor plan, Otherwise we could have France as a neighbor.

    If were moving things around, maybe pull Hawaii a little closer, I would like to visit the Arizona one time.

    Personally, I say we cast off everything south of the border, and let them move back if they want to.
